We had booked to visit the Warner Brother Studios to see the making of the Harry Potter films so wanted a hotel within easy distance, which had good facilities for the time in between. This hotel looked perfect from the website and we weren’t disappointed.
All the staff were very friendly and quick to help, from taking our bags to our rooms on arrival to advice on where the different facilities were. We all used the swimming pool and the gym, which were second to none, and had a wonderful time.
Breakfast was very appetizing and filling with so much variety, no one could possibly complain.
All in all a perfect stay. Wonderful facilities, well appointment rooms, friendly staff and very tasty food. We would definitely book again and recommend to all our friends.

An incredible bed and breakfast, which I didn't want to leave. The room is incredibly comfortable and spacious - an adjoining lounge provides an area to relax in. The room is jam packed with wonderful hidden treats including home made cordial and biscuits, beautiful toiletries made using local lavender and a selection of delicious teas. The host has the most amazing eye for detail and clearly loves what she does. The choice for breakfast was wonderful, as a vegetarian I often have just an item or two to choose from but the host listed off many choices the night before and even let me have a sneak peek of a new vegetarian menu she was close to launching.
I could go on and on. It was wonderful and made me very happy. I will be back.
The hotel had character and was very busy when we arrived in the late afternoon. The staff were very pleasant and helpful and the food was very tasty. We chose the hotel as it was close to the cathedral where we were attending an ordination ceremony the following day.
The only drawback was the noise from people walking through the passage way which linked one part of the town with another. And this continued well into the early hours. As it was a very hot night we had to have our bedroom window open and this meant that we weren't able to get much sleep.
The city of St Albans, 22 miles north of London, was known as Verulamium in Roman times and was the second largest Roman settlement in Britain. Visitors can learn more about the Roman town at the Verulamium museum, while the Museum of St Albans focuses on more recent history. The clock tower is the oldest medieval belfry in Britain, and the cathedral was a well-worn stop on the Pilgrim Trail.
